    I've just about had it with the OEM browser. I preferred it over Dolphin because it was simpler, but ever sice the 2.0.1 update, it has been absolutely squirlly.

    1) Pages load slower, sometimes not at all. Have to reload to get them back up.
    2) Sometimes I will touch a link and it will scroll to the bottom of the page.
    3) If I leave my finger on the screen, it starts jumping all over the page like its on crack.
    4) When I swipe to scroll across the entire page, it lags.

    These are just a few. Is anyone else experiencing any of these issues?

    Which browser was it that let you view real webpages, not mobile pages?

    Thanks for your help!

    Installed Dolphin about a week ago. Notice my phone was getting slower and slower. Christmases Eve the slowness was really evident after playing with my friends Droid apped exactly like mine,minus Dolphin. Uninstalled it,and the phone's been fast since. Anybody else had this problem?

    don't think it is a dolphin problem... there is a documented problem about 2.0.1 and browser scrolling... and i've noticed it as well with both

    Immediately after the 2.0.1 update I found that more often than not I would enter a search term into main google page in Dolphin, hit "google search", the button would grey out, and the search wouldn't initiate. I can go back and use the included Browser and a search works just fine. Maybe Dolphin needs another update??

    BacknBlack,
    I know you've got your Droid rooted.... is the 2.1 browser improved over what we received for a browser update in 2.0.1?

    I only used 2.0.1 for about 1/2 day before going to 2.1, So I am not a good judge for that...I was using Dolphin anyway.
